Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom Celebrates 21 Days of Festivus


Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom is celebrating the holidays and the close to another bountiful year with its first annual 21 Days of Festivus. The three week long celebration runs from December 6th to the 26th, encompassing the 8 nights of Chanukah, 12 days of Christmas, and Kwanzaa. The main highlight of the 21 Days of Festivus is that Imperial is posting daily giveaways on its Facebook page as a token of appreciation for customers. Winners will receive prizes ranging from $5 gift cards and swag from local breweries to the grand prize, a growler a week for all of 2016, which will be  announced on the 26th.

The 21 Days of Festivus will also feature specialty holiday beer tappings, such as Fremont Brewing’s Bourbon Abominable. To find out when these beers are tapped and get details on other special discounts, iPhone users should download Imperial’s brand new iPhone app. Available in the Apple store now, the app displays Imperial’s current tap list, automatically notifies users when beers go on tap at Imperial, and even allows users to follow specific breweries so they know when their favorite beers are on tap. Imperial fans without iPhones should check Imperial’s website and social media daily to keep up to date on beer tappings and special discounts.
